A rye whiskey in the Pennsylvania style, this "carries a famous old Philadelphia name". Very tasty and aromatic.

Nose: Dried fruits and soft spices. Cocoa and butterscotch, alongside orange peel, cinnamon and caramel.

Palate: Thick, fruity palate with chocolate oranges, cassia bark, nutmeg and oak.

Finish: Tangy fruit and quite coppery. Marmalade and spice.

Rittenhouse Straight Rye 100 Proof Reviews

Surprise hit, absolutely love it

Highly recommend, this rye is delicious. Add it to your collection, you won’t be disappointed. Great value for money.

Great value and good quality rye

I got this one because it was Ralfy-recommended. I prefer single malt Scotch, but do enjoy bourbon and rye. Not sure if I prefer rye to bourbon yet, but it's a journey. This one is well done. And at the price (here in the US) - a must have.

Superb.

Whisper it, because if they hear you they'll jack up the price—this stuff is excellent. Rich, sweet, spicy, smooth, and a wonderfully wide, buttery mouthfeel for something in this price range, and frankly better than lots of stuff that costs 2-3x as much. At the very least, it absolutely beats the snot out of any of the standard mass-produced bourbons or ryes one can generally find in the UK, which again are almost always more expensive than this. It's not particularly subtle ... but it's delicious.

Rittenhouse Straight Rye 100 Proof (70cl, 50.0%)

Populär ryewhiskey som är tillverkad på heaven hill distillery, Kentucky. Luktar som rågen som finns i en del flingor nästan och utöver det nötter och svag doft av äpple.
Smakar råg och nötter samt udda oidentiferade smaker, ganska tydliga smaker överlag. Bulleit Rye var bra mycket godare men denna är fortfarande en helt okej amerikansk whisky utav de få jag provat. Provade en del vatten men gjorde varken till eller från, kanske mer ifrån till och med.

Excellent

This is one of the best rye whiskies I had ever, definitely comparable to bottles 3 to 4 times as much. Stock up when you find it.

Probably the best value Rye out there

In a world where getting good Rye outside of the US is becoming a major headache - this is an example that is always available and always in my cabinet. Combined with Antica Formula it's probably my top Manhattan Rye, and it's got enough depth and complexity to be drunk straight (when napped a little). Non-US markup is horrendous on all Rye's - this is available for $24+local taxes in the US, but if you aren't planning a trip to the states soon it's easily the best value available in the UK in £.

Rye Whiskey

A fine, fine rye whiskey. Smooth. Never ignore this rye whiskey

It May Not Be The Most Complex Rye- part II

"It May Not Be The Most Complex Rye"

and if they charged $80 it would become 'complex' overnight.

Makes a great 'Whiskey Cock Tail"

ÓWK

First Rye Whiskey for me. Beautiful stuff!

13th November 2015

It May Not Be The Most Complex Rye...

...but it is so tasty it is an extraordinary pleasure to drink. I refuse to be a snob about the fact that (in the US at least) it is a pretty cheap bottle to buy.

27th August 2015

WOW!

i'm not big on rye, but this stuff plays with tongue. then so smooth and light with the finish.

Rittenhouse Rye

sweet corn and pepper, lots of pepper Wuth a dash of brown sugar.

Nuff Said

My absolute favourite bourbon for the price mark. Stands distinct.

Bottled in Bond

This is one of the very few bonded whiskeys still produced. The flavor profile is in-your-face, with 50% ABV and all of the peppery spice one would expect from a predominately rye mash bill. Once you acquire a taste for it nothing else quite satisfies. Oh, and go ahead and mix it if you like. Makes a classic old fashioned.

13th August 2014

Meh

For the bourbon drinker on a budget, its a good Rye. Just know this goes for $25 in the states, so its not meant to be a premium spirit. I don't usually mix my whiskey, but this might do well in a Manhattan. I think a much better choice would be to spend a little more and buy the Buffalo Trace Sazerac Rye instead.

Was hoping for more

This was my first try of a rye whiskey. I have to say, I was hoping for a little more. Nice sweet flavour, but not much depth to it.

18th April 2014

Lovely

I bought this as a cocktail ingredient but it's good enough to drink on it's own. A dash of water calms it down and brings out more of the flavour.

4th December 2013

hot

I found this hotter than most ryes, maybe just the 50% ABV factor. Perhaps that masked some the rye flavors I was expecting. It's a good rye, but I prefer others to it. Karl

Bourbony rye

Corn syrup and sharp rye. No real complexity there. Lots of flavor, without interplay between them. You can taste corn, you can taste rye. That's it.

Kentuckeys answer to Islay? not quite.........

A great whisky, sweet and spicy on the nose with vinilla, maple syrup, cloves and cinnamon, and in the mouth you get all of those flavours along with hints of green apple and the slightest suggestion of black pepper at the sides of the tongue, if you're not usually a rye whisky drinker (a catagory which I fall into) this is a great place to start, If you like BIG whiskies with demanding, powerful flavours like that of Islay malts, you'll enjoy rye whiskies, Rittenhouse rye 100 proof is a very complex yet not too overwhelming, this is a whisky that less experienced whisky drinkers will enjoy and yet has enough interesting qualities and depth that experienced drinkers will enjoy also, I will most certainly be buying another bottle of this soon and would recommend that malt drinkers should give it a try.

single malt man

Single malts, mostly Islay and Highland, are my usual drams but I have been tempted recently by Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and now Rittenhouse 100%. This Rye whisky is a beauty - sweet on the nose and palate with plenty of vanilla and spice. Sip at full strength for a viscous mouth feel and glowing warmth.

mistressofmalt

a lovely sweet and firery whiskey with flavours reminiscent of maple syrup and christmas spice, tabacco and buttery leather. A wonderfully warm embrace in a glass.
